« Part 6: thinking of the boys Part 7 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 8: the fighter plane »

After building these tanks, ships and planes for my father I decided they looked like something my nephews would enjoy and possibly my 11 year old although he is kinda getting old for that kinda of stuff, maybe for a shelf. Anyway I did not want to just build little tanks I wanted to make kits for the kids giving their dads some fun too hopefully. I decided to buy wheels at a store and haven’t done so as of yet so the kits are missing wheels. other than that they are complete. I have two will need to make at least three more.

I also added a gas tank on the back, mostly to add character as the boys are young and wouldn’t realize the issues with having a tank on the back of a tank.

thank you, I don’t make the fine woodworking I want yet but I get a kick out of this little stuff while I am learning.

Again….looks good to me! If you came up with the design on your own then your way ahead in the game..after a while it easy to make …lot harder to imagine!
